Monday Motivation

via College Prepster
The more time I spend in adulthood, the more my personal definition of success has shifted. Success for me used to be reaching that end point. I graduated from college, found a great first job, then I was accepted to and attended graduate school. The logical next step was a job. My search started early and hard and I'd have to say that I snagged quite the offer with my current workplace. 

In the past two years I've learned that success is more than just finding a title and a role and settling. There's still a good deal of hard work that needs to be put into your current position as well as staying focused on goals to work towards. 

After stumbling around for the past few years and having a few moments of wondering if I'm in the right place the clouds have finally cleared and the sun came out to show me some new goals. Ironically enough this happened on a snow day. 

So on this Monday I'd like you to stop and take a look at yourself, your life, and your work. Just because your life may give off the facade of success, doesn't necessarily mean that you yourself feel successful. If it's not adding up, start thinking about how you can get back to a place where you like who you are, what you're doing, and how you're doing it. 

That Maya, one smart lady.
